This sentence in LVM/RAID on LUKS seems strange to me:

<blockquote>

Since the encrypted layer resides on a physical partition, though, it will not be possible to exploit the ability of LVM and RAID to span multiple disks.`

</blockquote>

I infer from it that it is not possible to have a VG with more than one LUKS device, or mixed LUKS/non-LUKS PVs in a VG. Also, this disadvantage is not listed in the table at: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm-crypt/Encrypting_an_entire_system#Overview, so it seems contradictory at best.

Close the temporary container before returning to dm-crypt/Encrypting a Non-Root File System

At the end of the 'dm-crypt wipe on an empty disk or partition' section we do not say that the user must close the temporary container before going to dm-crypt/Encrypting a non-root file system#Partition. Couldn't be great to add a command like 'cryptsetup close container' before the last sentence ? Barbrousse (talk) 12:37, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, you're absolutely correct, please go ahead and add the command. — Kynikos (talk) 10:11, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
